The lack of British films was discussed in the Ontario

Legislature recently, and a Conservative member pro- posed that certain restrictions be placed on the owners of cinematograph theatres who fail to show a certain per- centage of films of British origin. Similar discussions have also taken place in Australia. I believe that the time is ripe for the appearance of a British film magnate with imagination. If he were prepared to produce British films on a sufficiently large basis and to devote special attention to the mechanical side of his work he would find the public ready to welcome him. If he were wise he would associate with himself the best brains that Los Angeles can produce.
